Avoid having "This patch" or "This commit" in the commit message. It is
tautologically useless.

Also, do

$ git grep 'This patch' Documentation/process

for more details.

Reflow those comments to 80 cols. There's room to the right.

So the code sets TIF_NEED_FPU_LOAD unconditionally, why are you changing
this?

Why don't you simply do:

set_thread_flag(TIF_NEED_FPU_LOAD);
fpregs_lock();
if (xfeatures_mask_supervisor())
copy_xregs_to_kernel(&fpu->state.xsave);
fpregs_unlock();

<--- comment here why you're doing this. That function is an abomination
and needs commenting at least.
